Emma prefers to share her thoughts with a microphone rather than a physical human being, so thank god she has a podcast. Recorded from the comfort of her bed, Emma talks at length about whatever is on her mind every week. Anything really does go on this podcast. Sometimes philosophy, sometimes a random story from 10 years ago, sometimes advice, and sometimes nothing at all. You never know what you are going to get, but that’s what keeps it interesting. New episodes every Thursday.

This is why I lock you out of the room when I record, because you're really cute but really ******* annoying. So get off of me. Thank you. OK. Anyway, so a few episodes ago, I, like teased that there was this embarrassing story that I wanted to tell but I, like, kind of wanted to make. A whole episode about it, or like at least. A decent portion of an episode about it, like basically dedicated an episode to it, and it's my first kiss story. Listen, I've been putting this off forever. Forever. I remember when I did a Q&A once, like one of the first videos I made on my channel. It was a long *** time ago. I like one of the questions. That I got asked for the video because it was a Q&A was like, tell your first kiss story and I like. Made-up a joke or whatever, and like I said, I'd never kissed somebody or something. Whatever. And I've been waiting until it was very far behind me before I could, like, talk about it because it's just like, it's kind of ******* funny. Like, I I've it's funny to me now, but it was like a crazy emotional rollercoaster. And I just want to, like, talk about it and, like, tell you the whole story and whatever. And we can laugh together, we can cry together, whatever. And then, you know, see where it takes us. OK. So I'm going to take you back to freshman year. For some context. I was. A late bloomer didn't go through puberty until I was 16. Very short. Looked very young. Kind of unfortunate looking to be honest. Really like, not sure who I was. Didn't really have a solid backbone. Leg was kind of just all over the place. What a mess. And. I was really. Just trying to find my identity, like I don't think that I had a firm. Thought or belief about who I was, like, I don't think I knew who I was. And you know, I was always trying to be cool and like, fit in and all that dumb stuff and like, that was my main priority. And so. The fact that I had not had my first kiss was like very embarrassing because everybody else was like dating boys, kissing boys, whatever. And I was like not there. Like all of my friends. They all had boyfriends or like had their first kiss and all that, and I was like very left out. Some of them hadn't, but like most of them had. And so I was behind it felt like so. It's a New Year's Eve party. And. I went to an all girls school, so we went to a party that one of the guys through that went to the All Boys School because there's all girls school and all boys school and they like do events together, whatever. So one of the boys from the All Boys School threw a party and I was invited and I remember I show up and. I meet a bunch of people that I'd never met. And I remember. Somebody was like, have you ever had your first kiss? And I was like, no. And they were like, oh, you should kiss blank. We're going to call him James. His name is not James, but I'm just going to call him James because that's easier. They're like, you should kiss James. And I was like. Well, I've never met James like, I just met James tonight. Like, I don't think I should kiss him. And they're like, no, no, let me set this up. Let me set this up. And I was like, Oh my God, no. No. No, no, no, no, no. It's like 8:00 PM at this point. Everybody's like socializing, having fun, like everybody's flirting with each other and I'm just this timid little freshman that just, like, didn't know what the **** was going on. I was so scared of boys at this point. Like boys to me were so foreign. Like I didn't know anything about boys. Like I I was such like a mystery to me and like, they scared the **** out of me at that point and I was so intimidated. Not to mention, according to my friends, this kid James. Like, has kissed a lot of girls. So I was like, this is super scary to me. Like, I don't wanna do this. I'm not ready. Whatever. And so one of his guy friends came back up to me and were like, yeah, James would kiss you. And I was like, OK, like, I don't know, I don't know if I wanna do that. I don't know. I don't. I was freaked. And so I remember like 20 minutes go by. I like hide in the bathroom for probably at least ten of those minutes. And then for the other ten, I'm like out walking around just trying to like, avoid him. And then eventually he's like come outside with me and I was like, no. I'm 15 at this point, but I literally look 10. So you have to, like, think about where my self-esteem was at. I looked a decade younger than everyone else at this party, even though I was in the same grade I like. It was, I felt so small and like, so weak compared to everybody because I felt like a weak link because I, you know, went through puberty so late. And so I just, like, always had that in the back of my head that like I was, I felt younger than everybody else or something because I was so underdeveloped. And like, it really got to my head and it always made me feel like guys didn't like me and stuff like that, which was true but whatever. So we go outside and he's like, sit on my lap and I was like, OK, so I like, sit down on. This is TMI now. I kiss him. He kisses me. I was cool with it. I was like, whatever. I'm like shaking the whole time. Like shaking. Not to mention 60 degrees outside. Very cold. I hated the experience. I remember the first thing I thought I was like, this feels like too cold. It feels like a slug touching my mouth. Like I hate this. I never want to do this again. Like I hate this, I hate this. And I felt like weirdly guilty and like dirty. About it afterwards, but then he was like, let's actually go into this other room, so. We go into like this other room and like, he was like talking to me and then this is when she gets embarrassing and this is when I'm not sure if this story can go on the Internet. So we're, you know? Umm. We're doing our thing. Whatever. Very PG. Nothing crazy or anything. Obviously I was ******* 15 and like scared of literally being within 10 feet of a boy. It was very innocent, but like very still weird to me. And. This story will haunt me for the rest of my life. Declan, ******* stop. You're making loud sounds in the back of my first kiss story that's literally only gonna last like 5 minutes of this podcast. Which stresses me out because I thought that I was gonna be able to drag this one on, and apparently I won't, so I'm getting a little stressed out. Douglin get the **** out of my way anyways. Umm. And he touches my ****. For like a second and it startled me. And I ******* laugh. And he looks at me like I ******* killed his entire family. And he's like, what? And I was like, oh, I don't know, it just tickled me. I said it. Take on me. Ah. He was like, Oh my God, I'm crying, literally. My eyes are watering. I'm wearing makeup right now, my ******* makeups running on my face. He was like, what? What happened? And I said it tickled me. Ohh. My God. Immediately after that he literally like left the room. I think I can barely remember this. It was all a blur. I because I was so, like anxious about the whole thing that I kind of blocked it out of my memory. But I do know that that is exactly what I said. And I am so ******* mortified, oht. OK, so let's Fast forward. So we exit the room. Whatever, everything's fine. I'm feeling disgusting at this point. I feel dirty. I feel like I just did a bad thing. I feel bad about myself. I feel like really ******. And I also realized, like, OK, I don't really actually have feelings for this guy. I don't even know him. Like, this feels really wrong to me. I never want to kiss this kid again, or at least not for a very long time. Because I don't know him like that and I feel like I just did something that was like, not good. So I was feeling this, like, terrible guilty feeling. And mind you, it was a New Year's Eve party. So at midnight, everybody was going to have their New Year's kiss, OK? And I'm just, like, praying that he didn't want to do that with me because I'm like, listen, buddy boy. I don't think either of us had a good time, so. Is this really what we wanna do? Yeah. I was like, hopefully this kid doesn't want that. So a few hours pass and then it gets closer to midnight and one of his friends comes up to me and says, James wants you to be his New Year's kiss. And I'm like, and I literally looked to my friend and I'm like, no, I can't do that again. I feel really weird right now. I feel like a different human being. I feel like a different woman. I feel like I'm rebirthed and not in a good way. Like I cannot do this. And so. I hide in the bathroom. At midnight and supposedly James was very upset about this, but I'm really sorry, James, you know who you are. Your name is not really James. You're probably never going to hear this. We actually became really good friends after that and it was always something that we laughed about. So all good there, but. Yeah, I didn't want to do it again. And then here's what's funny. So OK, great. Emma had her first kiss. Ha ha ha ha ha. Whatever. Part of me is, like, relieved because I got it over with. I know what it's like now. Next time I have to do that, it's going to be fine. Whatever. But. The next day. I was a mess. My dad and I used to go on hikes all the time and. We went on a hike together the next morning and I wouldn't talk and he was like, what's wrong? And I was like, no, nothing, nothing. Like whatever, nothing. And then he kept asking me. And then I started crying and he was like, what's wrong? And I was like, I had my first kiss. And I'm pretty sure he was like, why are you crying about it? And? To be honest, it was so weird because I felt like. That was the first time I truly felt myself like growing up, and I felt like I had kind of. Leveled up in maturity from it and it. The feeling really, really ******* frightened me. And. I hated the feeling. And so. It made me break down. I like didn't feel like myself. I also felt like there is this like stigma in our society. That. Makes us believe that, like when you grow up and you start to do those types of things. It's like dirty or like bad or like gross or whatever. Like, I don't know why that is, and for some people it's not that way. But like, for me, I always felt like this weird, dark energy around, like, kissing boys or kissing girls, whatever. I mean, depending on what you're into, like. For me, like, the thought of kissing a boy was like, really like. Wrong almost. It was like, Oh my God, you're not supposed to be kissing people like, that's dirty. And like that's such a bad way to look at. You know. Being romantic with another person, like that's not the right way to be looking at it. It's actually a really beautiful and special and important thing that us humans can do. That obviously sometimes can be bad or, you know, a mistake or, you know, sometimes it can be. With somebody that you don't like, whatever, and like all of that, like, you know, it's not always great, but when it's with somebody that you love or even with somebody that you just think is cool and like, even if it's just a one time thing, like sometimes these things can be so amazing and fun and, like make you feel good and be like, just like a good experience. But like, for me, I felt like extreme guilt. I almost felt like I was like, I was like, I felt bad for my parents almost for no reason. They've never even remotely instilled something in my head that was like, oh Emma, like, kissing boys is bad Emma, don't do that. Like. They never did that. So I don't know why I had this, like mental block with it. It made me feel really, really weird and for a really like at least a month after that, I felt like really bad about myself. I think the other problem was that I didn't really know that kid or like him, so like that made me feel bad too, because I was like, I just. My first kiss was with somebody that I like, didn't even know and like. That's kind of ******. You know what I mean? Luckily, we became friends after that. So then it was like, funny and fun. But like, you know, in the moment it seemed like the end of the world to me that I had kissed a guy that, like, I didn't really even know at all and that I had met that evening. Like, that was so not me. You know what I mean? And I think throughout our lives we will do things that, like, don't feel like us, right? Especially with that sometimes if you, like, go through a tough breakup, you might, like, go and, like, do **** that you regret. You might, like, kiss a few people that you regret. You might, like, get into a relationship that you'll regret. Sometimes, like, you'll do **** like that. That's like, not true to you. And you'll realize that later. That's all part of your growing, right? Like, that's all part of growing. And that's really important. And it's really important not to feel guilty about that stuff because I felt so guilty about kissing James, but yet there was nothing wrong with me kissing James I agreed to it. I wanted to do it. I regretted it after because it made me feel weird. But that's OK and we move forward and I have no regrets. That was a part of my past. And, like, I don't regret it anymore at all. And it was like. Not even something I really regretted then and more just felt bad about it for whatever reason. And that's just so unnecessary. So. I don't know. I just think that that was such an interesting story. And kind of embarrassing. Kind of funny. Whatever. If somebody ever grabs your **** and you're like, and then you start laughing on accident, just tell them that your **** is ticklish. That just also leads me into something else, like I really don't know what it is about me, but. It's actually funny because a lot of people. On the Internet, I've seen people say this to me. They're like, I cannot picture Emma like. Dating someone or like being in a relationship and stuff like that. And it's so funny because since I was younger I've felt the same way about myself. There's something about me and my personality where, like, I just can't. It's I don't really play the normal role in like a relationship. Like, I'm very, I don't feel like I'm. The normal person in a relationship because. You know, I don't necessarily have the stereotypical, like, feminine, like roles in relationships, which is like all just the stereotype and stupid. But like, I tend to be a lot less affectionate sometimes. And, like, I don't talk about my feelings a lot. Like, I'll talk about my feelings about everything except for my feelings toward the person that I like or that I'm dating or whatever. And, like, that's something I'm learning, but like, I don't. I struggle with, like, not being tough on the outside. And I think that normally stereotypically, like with, you know? A lot of relationships. It like that you see in movies and in **** like that. It's like. You know, the guy is like the one that has this tough skin and like whatever and doesn't want to be affectionate and **** like that, even in real life the same way or whatever. But then with like girls, they're the ones that tend to be. You know, the ones that are all sappy and all of that. And like, sometimes it it's reversed. But that's always, like in the movie portrayed to be like, rare and like different. And like, for me, I tend to be not like that. Like, I don't fit that at all. Like, I'm somebody that, like, I'm kind of trying to put on this front and I have this tough shell on my outside and like. That's not normal and or no, it is normal and it's ******* fine. But like, it's not the stereotypical, like way that things work in movies and **** like that. And I think that that's why like me, like. Kissing a boy was like, weird because I was like, I don't like, like to be like, sappy and vulnerable or like romantic at all. Like, that just makes me feel weird and uncomfortable and like. You know, like me accepting compliments has always been a struggle, like **** like that. Like, it just makes me so ******* uncomfortable. And so I think that's why me having my first kiss made me feel like that, and so it's just so interesting. But whatever. Anyway, I have more things I want to talk about, but I hope you enjoyed my first kiss story. And now on to the next thing that I want to discuss. We're talking about Macy's again. My favorite one stop shop in such a beloved friend to anything goes. Macy's is the best because it really has something for everyone and every occasion. Whether it's clothes, HomeGoods, cooking Ware, whatever it may be, Macy's has something for you in the spirit of everybody having their own individual Macy's shopping experience. They're making us feel like true VIP's for the next couple of weeks because Macy's VIP sale has arrived just in time to get everything you need to cozy up this fall. From September 23rd to October 3rd, get 30% off regular sale and clearance items plus. 15% off beauty. And again, outside of beauty, that's 30% off. Pretty much everything from clothing, shoes and handbags to home decor and appliances. It's happening at Macy's. You want to know what I'm going to get? I'm going to get scarves because I really want to have a scarf. I live in California. It's only cold for like 3 months here, and it's not even that cold. Like it never snows, but I need to be leaning into the winter. Entire this year, because last year I wasn't going hard enough. So I will be picking up a few things from Macy's if you need to get some stuff for fallcheckoutmacys.com, that's macys.com. You'll find what you need. I can guarantee you that. OK, so here's the next thing I'm going to talk about, and it's the fact that I have. Absolutely. No mental capacity to hang out with anyone right now. And it's funny because somebody the other day asked me. They were like Emma. Like, what do I do if, like, I accidentally distanced myself from my friends and then, like, you know, they all get their feelings hurt, kind of. And then I want to, like, be friends with them again once I'm feeling better. Like, how do I like, you know, reintroduce those friendships or whatever? Well, let me tell you, I'm kind of struggling with a similar thing right now because I had like this whole my last like few weeks for me. I've been really crazy. Number one, anxiety through the roof, don't know what's going on at all with that. That's been really bad on and off. I mean, it's constantly bad on and off, to be honest. Like I think my anxiety. Gets really bad when, like, things change in my life and stuff like that. And like, things start to get crazy and like, either. Like, there's so many different factors. But like within the past few months, like, I moved and like, I've met so many new people and like **** like that. And a lot of that makes me freaked out. Like I'm I very much need stability. So like. You know, when things start changing rapidly, like, I get super anxious. So that's been one thing. Hi anyways. So that's been making me really anxious and just like overall general anxiety, super bad. And then. On top of that, like, I've had a lot of, like, unfortunate things happening to me. Like, for example, my plumbing broke. Not to mention, like, I've had like, you know, there's been a lot of. Like projects that I've been working on that have been like, you know, moved around and stuff like that, which means my schedule is always like, TBD and **** and so it's just like, super confusing. And. So basically, it's been really hard for me to hang out with people that aren't like the two people that I hang out with that are like my family, like besides that, like I I literally. Can't, and every time I do I get really anxious. Or. I'm like putting myself out in a sense where like I'm hanging out with people, but like neglecting something that's on my schedule, which is always bad cause that makes me really anxious as well. It's just been really hard for me to like. Be social outside of like. My family and my like best, best, best friends that are basically my family. Like, besides that, I'm really struggling to like be around people and like, find time for that. And I think the problem is that normally in the past I would like clear my schedule for everybody and, you know, not prioritize myself and my schedule and my work and all of that. And so I was constantly like putting myself out and not getting **** done because I was always clearing my schedule for everyone else. What I've realized is as painful and uncomfortable as it is to like. Kind of. Be unavailable to people at times. Sometimes you have to do it, and I'm struggling right now not to feel guilty about it. But what I've realized is that there's no reason to feel guilty about that. It is normal. Sometimes we need it and if people take it personally when you get your **** back together. You can explain to them what's going on. And The thing is, is that it starts to pile up, right? You start to like, realize, Oh my God, like, I'm I haven't talked to this person in a while. Oh my God, I haven't responded to this person like, blah, blah, blah. And it just all piles up. And I think especially right now because you know. Like, the whole COVID situation is like, obviously in LA it's pretty bad still. But like, in a lot of places, you know, things are starting to open back up and, like, you can see your friends again and like, school is like, starting and all that **** and so like. There's more opportunities. What the ****? There's more opportunities to. Be around people right now and I think we're all used to this like. Isolation. And then now all of a sudden everybody wants to hang out again. And for people who are like me, that like are iffy on socializing. It's like really anxiety inducing. And I mean, if you guys are feeling the same way, I just want you to know, like I'm feeling it too. You're not alone and it's tough because. I have to warm up to being social, like, I can't do it right away. I mean, not to mention I've become a little bit more awkward since I've gotten out of quarantine and all that and, like, started to see people again. Like, I'm awkward. I've lost a lot of my social skills and I'm struggling to, like, relearn them, like, and I knew that this would happen too. I used to be so outgoing and like socially equipped news because I was going to all these events all the time and I was constantly, like, seeing people and all that. And so I got really good at like, having these, like. Being comfortable in these social situations, but I feel like I've kind of taken a few steps back because of all of this and, you know, it's taking me a second to get back into it. And I feel bad sometimes because. You know, sometimes I can't hang out with people. And then in addition, like, my, the weird things have been happening in my life that have made it so that I don't have free time and, like, unfortunate events like, you know, me, my friend getting a fever and me being like, wait, are you sick or like, whatever. And then them not being sick and like **** like that, but, like, there's little things that are going on that, like, make **** worse. Yeah, right now and make it harder to like. Schedule everything, you know what I mean? Like, be around people that you haven't seen in a while, like or like my plumbing. Like, I literally had to stay in a hotel for a few days and like, I couldn't hang out with anybody during that because I was trying to work for my hotel and it was like this whole chaotic mess. But so that's not even me. Like, consciously not hanging out with these people. That was like, I couldn't. But then when I had the free time, I was like, God, I don't know if I can text them right now because I really don't know if I have it in me to be around people. And so if you're feeling the same way, just know that I think that this is very normal. I think everybody's feeling like this and. I don't know. We'll get through this together, but it's ******* tough anyway. I think I'm done with all my stories and all that today. I think we'll get into questions now, because why not so on the Twitter I asked you guys for questions about embarrassing stuff just because I thought my. Kissing's first kiss story was really. Embarrassing. So I wanted to keep that theme. OK, everybody's asking me for an embarrassing date story. But y'all. I hate to be the bearer. Oh, wait, no. Do you know what? I just remembered one. I just remembered one. OK. I was a freshman in high school. And I went on a double date. So it was me. And then it was like we were all group of friends. So it was like me, the guy I was kind of talking to and then his best friend and my best friend at the time, and they were dating and they had been dating for a long time. Super established couple, me and him had just started talking. I was very uncomfortable around him. It was not good. I was really scared of him. Blah, blah, blah, blah, whatever, OK? And we go to the movies. And. We we all sit down and I'm, like, so nervous and tense, mind you. Like, I'm not comfortable with this kid by any means. Like, being alone with him was, like, out of the question. I mean, like, no, OK, and. So basically. We get to the movie theater, we sit down and we realize no one else is in the theater. So we're like, awesome. This is so great. We start watching the movie. Whatever. And like halfway through the movie he whispers in my ear and he's like, should we kiss right now? Literally like that ******* vine or whatever. Are we able to kiss right now or take Chuck? Whatever the ****. I'm so old. Umm. And he literally says that in my ear and I'm like, OK, and then he just starts like. Kissing me in the middle of this movie and we're like right next to this other couple. That's our friends. And they're just like, awkwardly watching us kiss. Mind you, this was the first time I'd ever kissed him either as well. And it was. So awkward. I mean mad. Props to him for having the balls, I guess. But I also think part of him was maybe trying to, like, show up the other couple because he's like best friends with the other dude. And, like, he might have been like, trying to show off being like, yeah, look at us, whatever. But like, we weren't any. We weren't even remotely like that. Like, we didn't. We barely ******* knew each other at that point. Like, we were not close like that. And I was so scared of him and. It was just so awkward and like, and I felt like it went on forever. And I was just like, I don't know, I I'm not good about PDA, really. Like, I mean, I don't mind it like a little like hand holding and whatever is like fine or like a little kiss on the cheek or whatever. But like fully making out in a ******* movie theater. Like, could not be me. But it was me and it was in front of our best friends. And I remember after they were like, my girlfriend was like. That was crazy. And I was like, yeah. And she was like. How do you feel about that? I was like, I don't know. And, like, it was actually also funny because during it I kind of wanted to get her attention because I was kind of embarrassed. And so I, like, kicked her leg a few times during it, trying to be like, Oh my God, like, this is so awkward, like, getting her attention so that she knew that I was like. Kind of like, uncomfortable with it. Not like, uncomfortable, that's the wrong word, but like, kind of like, embarrassed by it. And then later she told me that she thought I was kicking her because I was having a good time. No. So anyway, that was that. Super embarrassing. Yeah. Clothes are one of the many ways that we express ourselves and we're constantly switching up our wardrobes. To reflect our interests and styles. But one thing that is a little bit more difficult to switch up is our glasses. Until now, because now with pair eyewear. You can have a different frame every day, OK?

OK, a lot of you guys are saying tell us embarrassing meeting stories, like things that have happened to me during meetings. I think the most embarrassing meeting I've had. In retrospect, this wasn't embarrassing, but like. I think it kind of was in the moment. So when I was like looking for an agent in LA I. Met with quite a few, and I didn't really like any of them. And then I had one more meeting with an agent. But at that point I was going to discouraged and I was like, I don't even really want an agent. Like, I just don't feel like they get me or my vibe or whatever, so I'm just going to wait on it. But I had one more meeting and I was like, you know what? I'll take it. I almost canceled the meeting. Really glad I didn't because I ended up signing with this woman and she's my ******* favorite person in the world. But. I had one more meeting and I show up and I had fake tan that was like ****** ** all over. OK because I had faked hand but then I had like wash my hands after and like it just dripped down my arm and it was so bad and I had drooled on my face. So the fake tan on my face had like this gross like circle of discoloration. It was really bad. My hair had not been brushed in probably a week and was up in a bun that you could see the knots in it and I was wearing sweatpants and a cropped shirt. And like, flip flops or something. And I met this woman who I had no idea. I had never spoken to her before at Phil's and we had a meeting and I was once I met her and realized that she was so cool. I was like, Oh my God, I totally just ****** **. I showed up looking so unprofessional and disgusting. That is so embarrassing. But luckily we ended up clicking. Amazingly, I signed with her and she is amazing. So shout out to my agent. She's amazing. But I literally looked like **** and it was very, very mortifying anyways. Oh my God. You guys are asking me some crazy ****. Somebody said how can I avoid getting my words mixed up when talking to somebody? OK, this is embarrassing and this happens to me all the time. I think it's like taking a deep breath and talking slowly and not overly focusing on your words. I find myself like focusing on my words and how I sound when I talk, and that just ***** me up. So don't do that and I think that you'll be fine. Oh my God, I have another embarrassing story that I just remembered one time I was. I a long time ago I was dating somebody. And oh God, this hurts. This one hurts. I was dating someone and I was. Hanging out with them in like a bunch of other people and there was like a bunch of other guys there and some of them looked like. They were all kind of around the same height. And like kind of a similar like build, like they were all very similar like him and all his friends were very similar. OK. And I walk into. A room, and from the back I thought that it was the guy I was dating, so I like. Put my arm around him like his waist. And I look up. And it's not him. And it's his friend. And I. No, it was so bad. Ah, it was so bad. Luckily, we all laughed about it after, and it was like, ******* funny. But like, no, that was the worst thing that's ever happened to me. And, like, he looked at me like I was ******* crazy and I've never. It was so weird too, like, to touch somebody like that that I'm not dating. I I felt like guilty. I was like, oh **** like, that's wrong. That's wrong, wrong. And so I felt bad. But anyway, so that was kind of funny. But. Somebody said most embarrassing experience in a public bathroom. OK, so one time I went into a public bathroom, as one does, and I was. Peeing, doing whatever and a fart slipped out as it does. I didn't think anybody in there was in there that I knew. But I was on a set. For a project that I was filming and I let out a little fart, it was whatever. And I thought that the other person in there was like, not from the set, like I thought it was someone else. And so I like, wasn't really so concerned about farting and all that because I just didn't see anyone come in the bathroom with me. So I thought it was fine. I walk out to wash my hands and in fact it was, I believe, the photographer and or videographer who had then heard me fart. It was the most uncomfortable hand washing experience of my life. I didn't look up. I literally was like, hi and then didn't look up again from the sink again. We live, we learn. I'm just never going to fart again. So that's good news. Oh my God, another embarrassing boy story. I have another one. I they just keep coming to me, but I keep forgetting. So, OK, it was a guy that I was dating a really long time ago. Men and. I was sitting on their counter like their kitchen counter. And like, I was not at a place where I could fart in front of this person yet I don't know if I even got there with that person. I don't think so. I don't think I was like, comfortable enough with myself to fart in front of anybody. I still am not so whatever. But. Basically, I'm sitting on their counter. And I'm talking to them in all of a sudden it my legs are up, right like in like I'm sitting in a ball kind of. And apparently that position's not good because a fart literally slipped out. Like without my knowledge. And it startled me. And he lost his ******* mind. He laughed at me for so long as he showed it. Whatever. It was so ******* embarrassing. I. It was embarrassing because I didn't know that it was coming, so it startled even me and I, like, didn't know how to react. Farts are not that embarrassing if you know that they're coming. If you can be like, OK, wait, I need to fart, BRB, like, turn around or plug your ears or plug your whatever, like, get out of here. That's like, fine and funny. But like, if you fart and you don't realize that it's about to happen and then it just happens and you're like, oh **** what do I do? That is not OK. That is dangerous to not good. So that's exactly what happened to me with him. It was so embarrassing. Whatever. It was funny, though. I mean, we laughed about it, but like, I. Got so red in front of him and it was just not good. Somebody said what's your worst. Story? I've told this before, but it's basically, I'll keep it short and sweet. I was at in and out Burger white chairs. We have a whole meal there. We get up. I realized that I had bled all over the white seat that was made out of like plastic acrylic and one of the guy friends I was with asked me what that was on the chair and I said it was ketchup and that we needed to go get into the Uber. He was luckily not super well read on the vagina. So I think that we were totally good on that one and that he didn't know what happened. But anyway, I've told that story before, so sorry if you heard it, but. Yeah. Oh, I have another good story. I can't say who this is. I don't think so. This was when I met. OK, so somebody asked me for awkward celebrity story slash. Something of that sort. And I just remembered one. So. I was at an event. And I see someone who. I've had a crush on for a long time. Umm, alright. Had a crush on for a long time. I don't anymore, but like I did at the time. This was quite a while ago but still very embarrassing. Had a crush on this person for a long time. And I was like, I need to talk to them like, at least just for a moment. And so. Like, I was kind of obsessed with them, to be honest. Like, definitely obsessed with them. Like, definitely a huge crush of mine. Like it the crush didn't go away for a long time. I mean, I. I don't know, I mean. Having crushes on celebrities is super fun and all that, but when you actually meet them, it's like a totally different scenario here, basically. I like. Talk to my agent and I'm like, I really wanna meet that guy right now. Please. And she was like, OK, let's make this happen. So. It was a work party, OK? And so she. Talked to some of her other agent friends and was like. Emma wants to meet so and so. Can we make that happen? And they were like, yeah, yeah, for sure. And so. But at this point I'm like, **** it's gonna look like I orchestrated this whole thing and I'm the biggest fan when in reality I just want to be asked out on a date. So. What the ****? Umm. Long story short. I get introduced to him. And it's so awkward because it's like, what do you say? Right, it's like. It like he's, I'm pretty sure his team was like. Oh, she really wanted to meet you. And I was like, no, no. Hey, hey. Hey, no. I didn't know. No, no, no, no, no. I did not want to. You guys asked me if I would meet him because you guys wanted me to meet him. This had nothing to do with me. No, no, no, no. He, like, like, totally made me look like this, like diehard fan. So then my job at that point was to make myself seem so ******* chill that, like, there was no chance that he could think that I was any kind of fan or that he was like, my. Celebrity crush for like multiple years. Like, there was no, I was like, no, I'm about to act as cool as I ******* possibly can. We actually had a decent conversation, but. It was so awkward because I felt like he was. I mean, I think our conversation was fine, and I don't really think it was that awkward. Like, in retrospect, he was so nice and cool and like, whatever, but like, I really like him just so mortified knowing that that kid knew that, like. I was introduced to him as like. A fan. And that, like, I wanted to be like, I wanted to see mysterious. I wanted to seem cool. I wanted to see him different. Not like other girls. But no, it was like, Oh yeah, she really wanted to meet you. Here you go. Oh, God, I just wanted to seem cool. It's like I wanted it to be like a fan fiction, where it's like, I just, like, went up and he was just smitten by me. Anyway, it didn't happen. And for better, honestly. You know, that crush was fun and it was long lived, but it died. She she passed away. That crush did. But. It was actually funny because then I saw the same guy. At another event, like a few days later and he was like talking to a girl. And I was sitting at this, like, in the like within 10 feet of him and I was like, **** like, I was so upset. It's like, *** **** it. But then that's kind of when the crash ended, honestly, I was like, yeah, I don't know. I was like, I'll just let him have his fun and talk to women and live his life and do his thing, you know? I mean, like, I won't get involved. Whatever. I'm just the little fan girl over here. But I did like. Really make an effort to make it look like I was having fun sitting 10 feet away from him while he was having like some deep conversation with this other woman. I was trying to make it look like I was very like life of the party vibes to see if I would catch his attention. Side note, don't do that. Super embarrassing. He probably thinks I'm the most annoying ******* creepy person he's ever seen. Because also the fact that we were at 2 events that like lined up the same it was, yeah. Super mortifying. So poor guy. He probably thinks I'm a stalker. And. I'm not, but. It was very awkward though, because it was like he was trying to talk to this woman, this other woman, and I'm like sitting at this, like table, like right near him and I was like, **** I hope he doesn't think that. I'm like, watching him. He wasn't thinking anything. He probably didn't even ******* see me. So embarrassing. But that was like super humbling experience. I was like, God, all I I yeah, whatever. It was fun. It was fun while it lasted. OK, so I've told you guys about circle before, right? Spelled CIRKUL. Circle was created for people like me, OK, who don't drink enough water every day circles basically this water bottle with over 40 flavor cartridges that makes drinking water way more tasty. The flavors cover all the bases. They have fruit, punches, iced teas. Some even have caffeine or electrolytes, but there's no sugar, there's no calories, and there's no artificial flavors. My favorite flavor is strawberry Kiwi. And my favorite thing about it is I love how the dial on the cartridge lets you choose how much flavor you get per sip. All you have to do is twist the dial to a certain number for how much flavor that you want and you're ready to go. So the cool thing about it is that you can put the cartridge on. And you can set it to whatever setting you want. So you could set it to a setting where when you take a sip of water, it just tastes like water, so there's no flavor added. But if you're in the mood to add some flavor, you can twist it a little bit. And then you have a super flavorful sip. Right now Circle is giving all of my listeners. Up to 35% off their order, plus free shipping on all orders of $15 or more. Plus, as an added bonus, we're throwing in my favorite flavor, strawberry Kiwi, for free. Just visit drink circom Emma.

Slash jeans and you didn't realize until later? Yes, this happened to me recently, so the other day. So I have this, my favorite pair of jeans right now. It changes once a week, but whatever, my favorite pair of jeans right now. They have a rip. Right on the vagina. Like, right. OK, so if you look at jeans, right, there's like a little cross seam like, right? On the. Right in the middle of your pants on the bottom, like in between your legs, there's like that little square that's like where all the seams align, the one that's going like one way and then the one that's going perpendicular or would that be. Yeah. And, like, there's that little scene in the middle. Well, I have a whole right, like, around that area, but which is basically where my vagina is. And so I wore those pants all day. And then it was funny because I was sitting in a chair and I looked down and I see like, my leg kind of popping out of that spot because of the way that I was sitting. And I was like, oh. My God. And I freaked out about it for about 2 hours. So anyway. Somebody said, how do you recover from an embarrassing moment? Honestly, for me, it's humor. It's just like making as many jokes about it as possible. Like the other day I was getting out of somebody's car and I hit my head and I literally just was like, am I just start making jokes? Just start making jokes, lighten the mood before it even can go bad. So I just, like, lighten the mood as much as ******* physically possible. The key is to try to not to get read like I try to make jokes about it before I get ready, because I get red when I get embarrassed. And that is the worst. The worst. OK, I really have to go to the bathroom soon, so I need to wrap this up. But I'm gonna answer a few more or just think of some more stories. Like I must have more embarrassing stories, like they never end. I'm trying to think of anything that's happened to me recently. OK, to be honest, I think the most embarrassing thing that I do. Is exist around guys that I like? Really? I mean, I'm so, like, not. I don't get embarrassed often, OK, like I do. But like, it's pretty rare I embarrass the **** out of myself only in front of guys that I like. Like, so clumsy around them. Like, stutter my words all the time. Say weird **** like. It just doesn't make sense to me why that is that way. Why am I like that only when it ******* matters? Like, I could trip and eat **** in front of my best friend and I wouldn't give a ****. But why does that only happen around guys that I like? I don't get it. And that's literally how it is. I it's like the most embarrassing **** happens to me then. And like, no other time, like, even it dates back to like, summer camp. I remember when I was a kid, like I remember I had a huge crush on this kid named Jeremy at summer camp and we were sitting next to each other in the circle. I ******* fart next to him fully loud on accident. Similar to what happened with my boyfriend a few years later after that. Like. On the counter, that one that I told earlier, like farted in front of him. So embarrassing. I mean, luckily I was like 5 years old, so it didn't really matter, but like **** like that. Or like my one favorite iconic story of me, like wearing a pair of Roxy pants to school because the guy had a crush on. Like, *******. He liked surfer girls, and so I wanted to be a surfer girl for him. Like, why do I act a fool like that? It's just so mortifying. I need to really reflect on that. But anyway. That's it for today's episode. I hope you guys enjoyed that story and all of that, and I had a lot of fun hanging out with you guys today and. I hope you're all having an amazing day.
